Forum: GratefulDead Subject: two suns in the sunset

In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
Sinking behind bridges in the road
And I think of all the good things
That we have left undone
And I suffer premonitions
Confirm suspicions
Of the holocaust to come

The rusty wire that holds the cork
That keeps the anger in
Gives away
And suddenly it's day again
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset
hmmmmmmmmmmm
Could be the human race is run

Like the moment when the brakes lock
And you slide towards the big truck
You stretch the frozen moments with your fear
And you'll never hear their voices
And you'll never see their faces
You have no recourse to the law anymore

And as the windshield melts
My tears evaporate
Leaving only charcoal to defend
Finally I understand
The feelings of the few
Ashes and diamonds
Foe and friend
We were all equal in the end

L.A. Women
I also like where your head is at
How about a song "about a nightmare"?

The path you tread is narrow
And the drop is shear and high
The ravens all are watching
From a vantage point nearby
Apprehension creeping
Like a tube train up your spine
Will the tightrope reach the end;
Will the final couplets rhyme?

And it high time
Cymbaline
Its Hightime
Cymbaline
Please wake me.........

A butterfly with broken wings is falling by your side
The ravens all are closing in
and there's nowhere you can hide
Your manager and agent are both busy on the phone
Selling coloured photographs
For magazines back home

And its high time
Cymbaline
Its high time
Cymaline
Please wake me

The lines converging where you stand
They must have moved the picture plane
The leaves are heavy around your feet
You hear the thunder of the train
Suddenly is stikes you that they're moving into range
And Doctor Strange
Is always changing size

And its high time
Cymbaline
Its high time
Cymaline

Please wake me..

"...You stretch the frozen moments with your fear"

One of the greatest moments/lines in rock history.

Pink Floyd, one of the all time greats. I remember the anticipation when this album came out. "Is this really the Final Cut?" I wore out the album (and the ones before it.) This band changed my life.

But yet, I don't listen to them much anymore. I usually get a little moody, and while that was fine 20 years ago, I have no time for that anymore.

Crank up some 1976 Bertha!!! Woo Hoo!

(What I mean by no time for it anymore is that once you put an album on, you have to listen to it in it's entirety. It's a story of our lives, the human race. Heavy stuff. And it's hard to listen to at soft volumes, and in a crowd situation because, beacause everyone wants to listen to the impact of the lyrics and music.)


They were all left behind,
Most of them dead,
The rest of them dying.
And that's how the High Command
Took my daddy from me.
